This procedure will assess whether a student is eligible to graduate within a certain period of study (generally four years for regular students). In Japan, students are often requested to submit a “Certificate of Prospective Graduation” during job-hunting activities.

Please note that these certificates only indicate the prospect of graduation and do not guarantee a student’s graduation.
